The main aspect of this package involves taking Rasayanas (Very specialised Ayurvedic medicine) and purifying the body and making it sweat readily (Panchakarma and Swedakarma). This treatment schedule requires 28 nights and is most effective if embarked on before the age of 60. It is equally recommended for both men and women.

The Ayurvedic weight reduction programme encompasses herbal powder massage and treatment with various medicinal herbal oils. The package is recommended to be taken for 28 nights to be most effective and sustainable. This program also includes medicinal steam baths and the oral intake of herbal juices as well as infusions and a special Ayurvedic nutrition plan. The goal is to achieve long-term weight loss by changing the metabolism.
Ayurvedic Body Purification
Our eating habits, life style and environmental conditions cause toxins to accumulate in the body and result in imbalance of the Tridosha. The body purification therapy supports the body’s natural mechanism of excreting these toxins and purifying the whole body so that it regains its balance of Vatha, Pitha and Kapha. The treatment is based on Snehanakarma (oil application), Swedanakarma (Sweet treatment) and Panchakarma (purification process in the narrow sense. The 14 nights package include body massages, purgative treatments, various oil application and medicated steam baths.
Ayurvedic Rejuvenation Retreat
The cells and the tissue of the body change over the years. It is therefore necessary to refresh and rejuvenate the body’s system in order to preserve the balance between the body, mind and soul. The course of rejuvenation includes synchronised body massages, performed by two therapists with medicinal oil and cream, medical steam baths and medicines. Rejuvenating face masks are also part of this package. This treatment is taken daily for 90-120 minutes and recommended for 14 nights.
